    Oh go on then. His articles are written under the pseudonym 'Martin Chandler'. And the best way to find them all is to view all threads started by fredfertang.

    I pick Len Hutton, who played against Vijay Merchant.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Fantastic use of the clause.

    We're going to have to veto the Tangy article clause, there just aren't enough players. Any idea of how you want to replace it, Howe?
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Don't have my cheat sheet in front of me, but from memory there are loads of Martin Chandler biographies. Maybe >25 Bronze-Silver-Gold Tier players. Certainly easier than the Merchant or Debut clause. Michael must have a wicked sense of humour.

    I am happy to post the entire list of players when I get home this evening.

    That'd be great, I could only find ~15 myself and that's just not enough seeing as a whole bunch of those players will be taken from other clauses - that's my main concern.

    Fair enough re the concern.

    However, Himannv has used the Fred Clause already and so it seems as though we should keep it IF possible. I'll post the list this evening then we can see what the folk say.

    Was I the only one who thought fredfertang feature meant "pick an old guy" or "pick someone awesome".

    I found at least 20 and I only looked through half the articles. It's a bit time consuming to search through them, but other than that it's a perfectly acceptable clause imo.

    In the 'Archive' section of 'Cricket Web Features' I managed to find 35 biographies with Martin's name to them. He kicks off (I think) on September 2009 with Harold Larwood. There is also Barrington, Tyson, Cowie, and Ponting to name but a few.

    I'm even thinking of leaving the 'Fred Clause' to last since it's very broad in scope. Only one keeper though, but he's a goodie.
